Basaksehir take on Kayserispor at the Fatih Terim stadium in the Super Lig on Sunday.

The Istanbul minnows have the chance to make history today. A victory would clinch the league title for Okan Buruk’s side.

Basaksehir would become Super Lig champions for the first time and only the sixth different Turkish side to win the league.

Basaksehir vs Kayserispor Preview

To be fair Basaksehir do deserve to win the league. They have been the most organised, well balanced, tactically astute side in the league.

What Okan Buruk has managed to full off deserves huge praise. Few expected him to pick up the pieces after Abdullah Avci left for Besiktas but boy did he do a great job.

Buruk managed to build an even stronger side on Avci’s foundations.

And here we are. Just hours away from a potential new Turkish champion.

Kayserispor will not be pushovers. They did beat Galatasaray last week and a victory here would take them out of the relegation zone.

It’s worth remembering that Basaksehir did lose last week. And had Trabzonspor not also lost there would have been just one point separating the two side.

Could the pressure be getting to Basaksehir? perhaps!

Basaksehir are favorites but I expect this to be a cagey, low scoring game.
